Monday for MLK's holiday, we ventured on over at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. There were so many delights to view (I personally had the biggest grin once I spotted a Modigliani!) and inspirations all around. Some of my favorites were Magritte, Picasso and Chagall. The exhibits were fantastic too! We saw
India's Fabled City: The Art of Courtly Lucknow with rich colors, ornate patterns and paintings that look like they were lit from within. Another (permanent) exhibit Nat enjoyed immensely was Art of the Pacific showcasing tribal masks, headdresses and ancestor figurines. The best part of the day was Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700–1915. This was Nat's all time favorite of the day. She really was having so much fun looking at all the clothes from different time periods. Lots of photos were taken with my little phone camera. Here are some (including Nat romping around on the Urban Light by Chris Burden) and the rest you can view on my flickr set.
